Aotearoa New Zealand is fortunate to have a rich cultural history. It’s up to us to preserve and grow that for future generations. Part of that is embracing Te Reo Māori. This is part of what makes our country special. I was fortunate to go to a primary school (a very very long time ago) which was proactive in including Te Reo Māori in school life. I’m grateful for that and want the same for all kids.
